Hair ex­pert Ritu Ge­hani sug­gests the fol­low­ing tips for hair­care dur­ing mon­soon:

Straight hair:

Am­mo­nia-free colours swell up the hair strands cre­at­ing full­ness. Wash hair with a vo­lu­mis­ing sham­poo, fol­lowed by a mild con­di­tioner.

Curly hair: This kind of hair lacks mois­ture, and if chem­i­cally treated, is more prone to break­age. Use a mild, sul­phate-free sham­poo and a good leave-in con­di­tioner to en­sure that the hair stays hy­drated and sup­ports the flex­i­bil­ity of the curls. Also, use a hy­drat­ing mask to fill in the poros­ity.

Wavy hair: Use a mild hy­drat­ing sham­poo, lots of con­di­tioner and leave-in mois­turiser. Blow-dry the roots com­pletely on medium heat set­ting, af­ter you twist the ends into a bun and let the lat­ter half of it air dry.

Coiled hair: Use a sul­phate­free hy­drat­ing sham­poo, in­tense hy­drat­ing mask and leave-in con­di­tioner. De­tan­gle the hair us­ing your fingers or a widetoothed comb to pre­serve the shape of your hair. Comb from the roots to ends. Never comb through dry hair.

Der­mato-cos­me­tol­o­gist Swati Srivastava sug­gests these hair masks for the sea­son:

Straight hair: Take equal amount of water and milk in a spray bot­tle. Spray on hair and leave for 30 min­utes. Dry it with towel. Rinse well, let it air dry and then comb.

Wavy hair: Take 1 av­o­cado, 2tsp olive oil and 1tsp honey. Mix and ap­ply on the hair and rinse off af­ter 30 min­utes.

Curly hair: Mix ap­ple cider vine­gar with water. Sham­poo your hair, and then use this mix to rinse your hair. Let it sit there for a while.

Coiled hair: Take 2tbsp may­on­naise and 1tbsp olive oil. Mix and make a paste, and leave it on the hair for 30 min­utes. Then rinse off with sham­poo.
